Starting Martial Arts in Later Life.

Getting older can be both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand you find yourself wiser and you get to see and share the lives of the people close to you.

On the other hand, things start to hurt more, you feel less energetic, get a little slower, less flexible and things start to droop!

Its those reasons why the thoughts of taking up a martial art can be a bit daunting… Fear of not being able to keep up or getting injured etc.

And its exactly those reasons why you SHOULD start martial arts if you are a bit later in life and haven’t before.

Training will help you build and maintain your strength, flexibility and fitness as well as challenge your brain and help you develop and maintain good balance and co-ordination; All things that are essential as you get older to stay mobile and in good health.

You don’t have to worry about keeping up with the 20 year olds, it’s a personal journey.

It’s about you doing something positive for yourself and your own health. You work at your own pace.

You train for you. Have fun, get off the sofa, release stress and move your body, it will thank you for it in the long run!
